 Cut broccoli into bite-sized flowerets.  Steam until crisp-tender.  =

 inches of green part.  Slice green onions - the kind stuffed with =
 
 pimiento.  You can also use green salad olives, which are already =
 
 chopped up; drain.  =
 
 
 To make dressing:  Combine any combination of mayonnaise, sour cream =
 
 and/or yogurt to make a dressing to suit your taste.  Experiment with =
